Abstract The p37 protein at the surface of cells forms a part of a high-affinity transport system and has been found associated with animal and human cancers. Here we show in NIH3T3 fibroblasts, p37 rapidly induces the expression of genes implicated in inflammation and cancer progression. This gene activation was principally via the Tlr4 receptor. Activity was lost from p37 when the C-terminal 20 amino acids were removed or the four amino acids specific for the hydrogen bonding of thiamine pyrophosphate had been replaced by valine. Blocking the IL6 receptor or inhibiting STAT3 signalling resulted in increased JNJ 303 p37-induced gene expression. Since cancer associated fibroblasts support growth, invasion and metastasis via their ability to regulate tumour-related inflammation, the rapid induction in fibroblasts of pro-inflammatory genes by p37 might be expected to influence cancer development. Introduction The p37 protein was first discovered on the surface of mouse sarcoma FS9 cells . Monoclonal antibodies directed against the p37 protein inhibited the invasive behaviour of the FS9 cells confronted by chicken heart fibroblasts . The p37 protein was found to be from and form a part of a three protein high affinity transport system . These proteins are highly similar to periplasmic binding high affinity transport systems of gram unfavorable bacteria. The p37 N-terminus possesses the C-S-N amino acid sequence required for an N-terminal glyceride-cysteine lipid extension which inserts into the mycoplasmal membrane . When was present, Rat-1 cells and FS9, L929 and NIH3T3 mouse fibroblasts all invaded chicken heart fibroblasts in the confronted explant assay . If p37-specific monoclonal antibodies were added to the assay the invasive behaviour was inhibited. The discovery of p37-induced cell invasivity suggested that contamination might play a role in the development of cancer. contamination has subsequently found to be associated with human and animal cancers including various carcinomas , as well as ovarian cancer and lymph node metastasis . infection is usually correlated with metastasis and predicts poor survival of gastric cancer patients . Fareed et al. analyzed the immune response of patients immunized intralymphatically with tumour cells and found patients exhibiting tumour regression had a measurable titre of antibodies against a 38 kDa protein . Ilantzis et al. confirmed the protein to be p37 ..
